Park layout

Crosscountry Creek - You can a break from all the excitement, kick back in your inner tube and float along the creek.Here's a tip: use the creek as transportation from one side of the park to the other.

Downhill Double Dipper - Two parallel 230' long racing slides will shoot you into a tunnel and keep you in the dark until seconds before you come splashing out into the pool. This is a big thrill ride with a 48" height requirement.

Slush Gusher - Slide down the 90' tall mountain gully, racing up and down the hills, until you reach the bottom of the mnountain. This is a big thrill ride with a 48" height requirement.

Teamboat Springs - At 1,200 feet, this is one of the longest family raft rides in the world. Waterfalls and white water will make this an adventure for the whole family. This ride is considered mild but wild.

Tike's Peak - This is an attraction for little ones over 48" tall. They will have fun sliding down the slides, playing in the fountains, and getting splashed by the pop jets.

Disney vacations

The least crowded time to visit is from Labor Day to Thanksgiving and from the week after President's Day (mid-February) to the start of Spring Break (mid-March).

You can definitely make the most of your vacation by staying at one of the Disney World hotels. If you do, you will enjoy special benefits such as Magic Hours, discounts at six Disney World golf courses, and the special Walt Disney World quality and service.

But if you choose to stay at one of the many hotels near Disney World, you can still visit all of the Disney properties to enjoy the atmosphere, have a meal, or shop. You may be charged for parking, but you can get validated for up to one hour of parking.

Wheelchairs and Electric Convenience Vehicle (ECV) - Rentals are available for a fee of $10 for a wheelchair (multiple day rentals are $8/day) and $35 for the ECV.

Strollers - Strollers are available for rent at the front of the park for a charge of $10/day for a single and $18 for a double.
